Vinyl soundtrack from Pixar’s ‘Up’ gets an amazing makeover, available TODAY

You know the music the moment you hear the first few notes.

You can see the animation in your mind’s eye when you hear the music. It’s the once-in-your-ears-forever-on-your-mind music of PIXAR’s 2009 blockbuster Up, starring the voice talents of Ed Asner (Carl Fredricksen), Jordan Nagai (Russell), Elizabeth Docter (Ellie Fredricksen and director Pete Docter’s daughter), Christopher Plummer (Charles F. Muntz) and PIXAR voice staple, John Ratzenberger.

You can hum the tunes played when Carl and Ellie watch cloud pictures on the picnic, when  Ellie loses her baby, when Carl loses Ellie, when Carl and Russell arrive at Paradise Falls and when Carl reminisces through the “Stuff We Did” book.

The music is absolutely mesmerizing, and so is the artwork on a brand-new vinyl album package and cover made for the 2009 film by Mondo.

Mondo is a relatively small operation based in Austin, Texas, with a global staff of creative artists and designers who are passionate about the work they do creating books, games, collectibles, toys, soundtracks and other paraphernalia for popular films.

Artwork for the Up soundtrack in vinyl features some of the thousands of balloons Carl tied to his house when he left for Paradise Falls and was created by artist Nicole Gustaffson.

The soundtrack for Up was written by Michael Giacchino. You’ll remember his name if you’ve seen the credits for The Incredibles and Ratatouille. Giacchino wrote the music for those soundtracks as well. Each one has a flair all its own, perfect for a superhero saga and a culinary cut, respectively.

The Up soundtrack includes these titles and others:

  • We’re in the Club Now
  • Married Life
  • Carl Goes Up
  • 52 Chachki Pickup
  • Paradise Found
  • Walkin’ the House
  • Three Dog Dash
  • Kevin Beak’n
  • Canine Conundrum
  • The Nickel Tour
  • Stuff We Did
  • Memories Can Weigh You Down
  • He’s Got the Bird
  • The Spirit of Adventure

Mondo’s new vinyl treatment for the Up soundtrack just became available today for pre-order online on Mondo’s website. You’ll find other PIXAR film vinyl soundtracks as well, such as Ratatouille, also by Giacchino, and Soul, which was written by Jon Batiste.


About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
